Police make arrest in shooting of man & pregnant woman

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans Police arrested Renoldo Henry for a shooting in the 2500 block of North Derbigny Street on Friday.

Detectives were called to the scene and found a pregnant woman and a man shot multiple times. Both victims were taken to the hospital in critical condition.

During the course of the investigation, detectives learned that Henry and the male victim got into an argument inside the business. Detectives say during the argument, Henry got a handgun and chased the male victim outside and fired several times, hitting both the male and female victims.

Henry was booked into central lockup on two counts of attempted first degree murder, attempted first degree feticide and three counts of obstruction of justice. Investigators say the obstruction of justice charges were added against Henry because he destroyed the buildings surveillance system and illegally disposed of a gun.
